Touch of Madness [4e] [IC] [Paging Insight, Walking Dad, Erekose13]
Nestled along the Chill river lies the town of Wellspring, an old town with alot of history, but the key focus of the towns history lies in the center of the town's square. A massive statue to Estered stands here, today is a holy day to Ioun, some say today was the day that Ioun's saint Estered assended to join Her Divine Knowledge.
Pilgrims have come from far and wide to worship Her today, they crowd into the square, near the ancient vine covered temple and the statue. It's been raining since before dawn this morning, a light slow drizzle but it's afternoon now and hasn't driven away the pilgrims.
Some pilgrims pray, others simple look on in awe at the temple or statue. Along the edge of the square merchants hawk food, and "artifacts"
Kyriel and Sharun talk as they watch over the pilgrams while standing near the temple.
Baden makes his way through the crowd trying to get to the temple
Darek nearly bumps into Gruk who is leaving the Tavern as Darek is about to enter.
Baern comes around the corner into the noisy square looking for the tavern.
At this moment a scream rings out, then another. Then a chorus of screams fill the square. Many of the pilgrims begin to run. As you look in the direction of the screams you see four beaked brains trailing barbed tentacles come to hover above the square's occupants. A constable lunges at one, and the creature quickly pulls him off his feet, tearing him apart in a shower of gore. At the moment the largest creature speaks in a foul tongue.

Walking along taking in the sights Sharun suddenly stops and snaps his eyes toward the strange creatures, and racks his brain to try to remember what they are as he steps his right, under the tree, and prepares to fight them.

Darek Hornswallower, still in the mire of nearly knocking Gruk prone, turns to see the strange creatures wreaking havoc in the town square.

Phaeryn walks past the inn, surrupticiously aiming to enter quietly when he sees the disturbance across the courtyard. Those humans will be a problem, scattering across the field of battle. he thinks to himself having already decided that the extraplanar creatures were enemies that needed dealing with.

Baern, HP 80/80
"What the ..." Baern is taken offguard by the creatures sudden appearance. But they seem strangely familiar...

Baden is scanning the crowd ahead, planning his path through it to the temple, when the creatures appear and the constable is torn asunder.
As soon as those things are finished with the locals they'll be coming after us. Best to be proactive, I think . . . Besides, killing them might earn me some goodwill here that could help me land my next job.
As he begins walking calmly toward the ruckus, the exotic looking man draws a gray bladed rapier in his left hand and a hand crossbow in his right - loading the crossbow one handed with the surety of long practice - takes careful aim and looses a bolt. A suit of dark leathers flicks into place around him, covering the fine clothing he was wearing to the temple.

Gurk moves up to the right, near the building, not really having a clear idea what these thing are, but realizing they need killing.ooc
ooc: I will make up a statblock when I'm home, sorry.

Kyriel's expression turned from one of placid enjoyment to one of abject dismay when she saw what was happening. "No!" she exclaimed, and even in her distress her voice was silvery and hung in the air for a moment after she was done talking, as if it at loathe to let them fade.
Galvanized to action, the deva rushed forward, throwing her plain brown cassock open and its hood back to reveal her long lavender hair flowing behind her, and her blue-tinted face with flashing eyes, and a glimpse of her statuesque shape clad in a thin, plain dress. But then light coalesced around her, dazzlingly bright, and when it faded an instant later she was girded in silvery mail with links so fine that it seemed almost like liquid poured over her, with oversized pauldrons wrought like roaring lion's heads and a skirt of overlapping plates that reached her knees. A white tabard with gold trim emblazoned with the sigil of Ioun overlaid it all, magnificent in the force of its simplicity.
The avenging angel lifted her staff as the glare of her armor's arrival faded, and there was another flash; this time a solid bar of light that for an instant connected her staff at the closest monster, bright enough to leave an afterimage when onlookers blinked.
(Initiative is 14, it's the first roll but I forgot to include the level bonus. Hee.)
(Convert standard to move, then double move straight north to D24. Use Minor action to summon armor. Cash in Action Point to regain standard. Using Sun Strike on Grell 4. To hit: 30, damage 9 and slide Grell away from people 1 sq)

Gurk moves first with obvious detirmination. coming along side the building to the right.
The beast closest to the pilgrams lashes out at a woman cutting her open at the midsection in a show of gore.

Sharun walks forward six paces while drawing his Orb from the pouch hanging at his side and staring intently at one of the Grell. He mutters aloud to himself while he walks, "What are Grell doing here, and together. There must be something pushing them to be here.", then he turns to Kyriel and says, "Can you understand them? I think it's Deep Speech but I've not had a chance to learn that.". He then reaches his mind to the nearest Grell and mentally blasts it, hoping to prevent him from attacking any more of the pilgrims.
